GetVidya is a registered NFP social service charitable trust focused on helping students and schools integrate computer in their standard training program. We distribute free interactive learning software and training programs. So far, we have more than 43,000 registered members and a team of close to 15 volunteers from IITs and other esteemed institutes. We have helped more than 30 schools, 3 NGOs and 4 Autism centers and changed the way they used to utilize computers.
We are a team of students/engineers/professionals from IITs, IT-BHU and other esteemed engineering institutions. Though we got varied interest and taste, one thing that is common to all of us is our interest in Economic Development through Education and a keen desire to work for the society at large. Our teammates are thoroughly self motivated and have a high degree of passion for community service. We don't want any returns of our efforts. The sense of satisfaction that we derive out of contributing to the society and the have-nots is enough to keep us ticking.
We personally and most firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. Quite a few times this reason is so compelling that you go ahead and do something about it. All of you must have had encountered such a situation at least a couple of times in your life when some thought or desire is so strong that you just can’t stand it and it gives you a driving force to take an action. Somewhat the same kind of reason motivated us to form a community called GetVidya!
We all know that education is a big issue in India. If there is one thing that we would like to do to better the economic status of our fellow country mates, it is to give them the power of education and enable them to have a good life. With millions of people struggling to find a livelihood and a major chunk of our population being tagged as illiterate, the only way going forward is to spread education, make people aware and hold hands of those who need education.
The Getvidya team collaborates with schools and other community service organizations which are working in the area of economic development by providing educational support to the needy individuals. The Getvidya team realizes the fact that a very small fraction of our population gets to see the college and hence it is very important to ensure that kids who are in primary and secondary schools are coached properly and are given constant guidance to ensure they don’t drop out of schools. The Getvidya team has visited numerous schools and arranged face to face interactions with kids to make them realize the importance of education. The team also explored ways to ensure kids remain interested in studies and have sufficient moral support to continue their formal education. Getvidya team also distributes its open source free software to make education interactive and fun. We believe a happy kid is able to learn better :)
Our reward is the happiness of the kids that we know is brought by us!
We at GetVidya are determined to provide multi-facet assistance to students ranging from 5th to 12th standard.
